My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a logician. I teach swing dance. I'm a blogger for NPR's A Moment of Science. I've never meta pun I didn't like. I'm going to rescue science and math education in the US, and maybe save the rest of the world with philosophy while I'm at it. I grew up on a farm. I've a pretty taste for paradox. I regularly salsa with Douglas Hofstadter. I can move objects with my mind. I'm a retired stripper. I used to live at a Zen temple. I'm highly suspicious of the law of the excluded middle. Exactly one of the sentences in this paragraph is false.

*I don't actually live in Amherst yet. I'm currently in Bloomington, IN. I'll be starting school at UMass in August.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'll soon be a grad student studying philosophy at UMass Amherst, unless I get a job out in California teaching rationality or devising clever plots for world awesomification. Or both.

On a daily basis, things look more like this.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Blues dancing, philosophy, turning jargony writing into actually readable English, helping undergrads pass their logic classes, leading people, making omelets, flipping pancakes, estimating how much food will fit in any given container, sex, holding conversations in iambic pentameter, walking home from dinner with take home boxes balanced on my head, being patient about really really long-term plans, working non-stop at problems I suspect might actually be impossible until I either solve them or prove that there's no solution, lindy hop, being incredibly silly while doing very serious things, getting so excited about science and math that I bounce, learning two orders of magnitude more quickly than you expected me to, minimizing chaos, convincing scientists and philosophers not to be so childish toward each other, and letting very simple things make me happy. If it weren't for law enforcement and physics, I'd be unstoppable.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair is very short and I'm hard to categorize.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Winnie the Pooh, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Thinking Fast and Slow, a variety of poetry anthologies with emphasis on British Romanticism, More Precisely: The Math You Need To Do Philosophy, and I just had an urge to search through my entire collection to do this properly but I think that's probably a bad idea.

Movies and shows: Abre los Ojos, Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog, Cosmos, Firefly, Star Trek TOS and Next Gen, MLP:FIM. I guess I really haven't seen a lot of movies or tv shows.

Music: Bach, Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Mozzart, Stan Getz, Billy Holiday, Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt, The New Orleans Moonshiners, Howlin' Wolf, Simon and Garfunkel. That's probably a pretty representative sampling.

Food: Sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Phenomenal consciousness, deep motivations driving passionate action toward a long-term vision for humanity, trail running, the process of leveling up, submission, parentheses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to become, and inspire others to become, more patient, rigorous, creative, compassionate, curious, and instrumentally rational. How to be a better blues follow. Mathy/logicy puzzles. BDSM. How my students think. How to close the gap between what I am and what I'd like to be. The relative epistemic, aesthetic, and practical benefits of idealism over eliminative physicalism and vice versa. Ants. How to do whatever it is I'm doing better than how I'm doing it. The syntax/semantics interface. Whether I more closely resemble Rainbow Dash or Twilight Sparkle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
swing dancing or blues dancing, inasmuch as I have a "typical" Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
